Wishful Thinking

You are
There's no question
The most frustrating person
I have had the pleasure of working with

You should
At least try to smile
And pretend
That you enjoy
Making my life miserable.

Arrogance is unbecoming
And none of us deserve it
Not you
Nor I,

So I try
To reach out to you
But all I feel
Is cold black coals
Between my fingertips
If I hold onto them
And squeeze them in my hands
As though in prayer
We will make diamonds.
